If anyone believes that weekends are for resting, they are mistaken where elderly caregivers are concerned! Weekends are a time to prepare, to shop, to make ready everything for the week ahead.
Today I worked to get some money back for my client. Even though the coupon did not work, it is definitely the thought that counts!
I also grocery shopped and tomorrow will begin preparing food for the week ahead. All in a day’s work (or seven), right!
The more I work and prepare, the more I feel that I am showing my clients that With Age Comes Respect. The more work and preparation I do, the more respect I feel that I show my clients!
Elderly caregiving is not for the light of heart. In fact, the position requires a very tenacious person; one with patience and kindness to share with anyone seeking a helping hand.
By Monday I will be ready to take on the elderly world once again, thanks in large part to all the preparation that I do in advance. Although I thoroughly enjoy my weekends, I do not slack because I truly want to make a big difference on my clients’ lives. The more I do, the more ready I will be.
